Professional Reader

 I am an official NetGalley member and professional reader. 

Currently, I am not accepting book review requests (sorry!). If you send me one, I will just delete it.

I prefer to choose the books I read, and I obtain all ARCs via NetGalley. Down the road, if more time opens up, I would like to change that! I’m an indie author and I know how important reader reviews are to one’s success. Unfortunately right now, I just cannot open up my time to review requests.

If you do have an ARC on NetGalley, however, I am much more likely to find and choose your title if it’s been listed in one of the NetGalley categories below:

General fiction

Literary fiction

Mysteries and thrillers

Sci Fi & Fantasy

Teens & YA

I prefer reading books with words and characters that are so lively and real, they wrap their tentacles around my brain and challenge me to think beyond my own world. My favorite genres to read are contemporary fiction, dramatic/literary fiction, dystopias, suspense, and select memoirs (think “The Glass Castle”). My favorite books have ranged from Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” and George Orwell’s “1984,” to Khaled Hosseini’s “The Kite Runner” and Junot Diaz’s “This Is How You Lose Her.”
